Bringing knowledge of sacred symbols to light, introspective teachers and beloved friends of CoSM, Eileen “Rosie” Rose and Dr. Michael Garger, devoted their time for a weekend workshop on creating mandalas.
Immersing into the sacred circle, Rosie and Mike led the class through the process of mandala making as active meditation. The techniques were simple and straightforward. Regardless of artistic ability or previous knowledge, students produced a variety of luminous mandalas using colored pencils on black paper and other materials.
Body/mind awareness developed as Dr. Mike guided the group through Chi Kung movements. The weekend also included a releasing burning ritual. Thank you to those who came out to express their inner light.
